The ultimate goal of the US-sponsored crisis in Syria is not simple regime change, but to divide the Arab republic as prelude to division of the entire Eurasia and maintaining US global primacy as a superpower.
“The US-sponsored siege of Syria is part of its attempts to divide Eurasia and maintain its global primacy as a superpower,” says columnist Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya in an article published on the Press TV website on Tuesday.
“Washington has no mercy on its friends or its foes either and countries like Turkey and Saudi Arabia will eventually be used as cannon fodder,” the analyst added.
He noted that the US strategists want the area including the North Africa and Middle East, Caucasus, Central Asia, and India to be turned into a black hole of fighting.
Nazemroaya then drew an analogy between the current American status and that of the former Soviet Union prior to its disintegration in 1991, insisting that the US is going through a similar, if not worse, social unrest and economic decline that the Soviet Union experienced just before it collapsed.
“Washington is broke, socially divided, becoming racially polarized, and declining rapidly in its international influence,” he wrote, emphasizing that American elites are determined to resist the loss of their global supremacy at any cost.
“Igniting Eurasia with fire and sedition appears to be Washington’s answer to preventing its own decline,” the author maintains, reiterating that the US started this process by initially destabilizing three different regions, namely Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.
As to the consequences of regional countries aiding the US-led efforts against Syria, Nazemroaya pointed to troubling challenges transpiring in Turkey.
“Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan has tried to blame Syria for fighting that has erupted in Turkey’s Kurdish areas, but he ignores the fact that the violence in Turkey is a direct result of Turkish interference in Syria. If they already have not, the weapons that Erdogan is sending into Syria will eventually find their way back into Turkey where they will be used by anti-government forces.”
The author concluded by warning about the potential impact of the US-sponsored scenario on major global energy suppliers, Russia and OPEC states.
“A resource war could be ignited that would bring ruin to a great deal of Africa and all the industrialized regions of Eurasia. This would happen while the US would stand by in the Western Hemisphere, watching from a safe distance,” as it did during World Wars I and II.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil.
